Siddaramaiah told the leaders that the yatra, which will be led by Rahul Gandhi, should have at least 25,000 party workers every day.

He said the 3,500 km yatra from Kashmir to Kanyakumari will enter Gundlupet on September 30 after passing through Kerala. “Every day, it will cover 25 km and will highlight issues pertaining to farmers, youngsters and the downtrodden,” he said.
